GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Michel Goulet Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys, game used sticks, game worn equipment and memorabilia come directly from the personal collection of Hockey Hall of Famer, Michel Goulet. Mr. Goulet personally collected and preserved these items over the course of his legendary NHL career. A signed letter from Mr. Goulet will accompany your purchase.

This gold Easton Aluminum hockey stick was game used by Hall of Famer Mark Howe while playing for the Philadelphia Flyers. The Boston Bruins selected Howe in the 2nd round of the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. Mark Howe’s illustrious career spanned 22 seasons; the first 6 of those were spent in the WHA as a teammate of his legendary father Gordie and brother Marty. In 426 WHA games, Mark tallied a lofty 504 points, leaving his mark as one of the WHA’s all-time best. His NHL career was no less impressive. In 929 games this defenseman banked 742 points leaving his career points total in excess of 1200. He was among the highest scoring defenseman of his era and was finally recognized with induction to the Hockey Hall of Fame in the class of 2011.

Mark was three times a 1st Team NHL All Star and was twice a 1st or 2nd team WHA All Star. He played in four NHL All Star games, four WHA All Star games and was the recipient of the Lou Kaplan Trophy in 1974 as the WHA’s Rookie of the Year. Howe also nabbed the 1986 NHL +/- award. Most would be surprised to find out that Howe’s year-by-year goal totals in the WHA years that he played in 70+ games read 38, 36, 39, 30 and 42. His career best for points came in 1978-79 with the Whalers, when Mark rang up an impressive 107 points.

Howe joined the NHL along with his New England Whalers teammates, as they became the Hartford Whalers in 1979-80 following the collapse of the WHA. After a few impressive seasons with Hartford, Mark joined the Philadelphia Flyers and proved the key piece to their puzzle. His leadership and stellar play from the point helped the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1985 and 1987, where they fell short both times to the Edmonton Oilers dynasty. Howe completed his Hall of Fame career in Detroit, the city in which he was born.

This gold Easton stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. Mark has autographed the heel. The stick is uncracked and in beautiful condition. This fresh to the hobby example comes directly from the personal collection of Michel Goulet and will be accompanied by his signed LOA.
